Covid-19 Ongoing Situation

PLEASE NOTE that it is likely that all club events for the remainder of the year will continue to be held online via the Zoom videoconferencing app. Our programme for the coming season can be viewed on our Events page (or there is a link at the end of this page).  For any further details please keep referring to our website, which will be kept updated as the situation changes.  We hope to resume meeting up in person after this Christmas, or as soon as it is safe to do so.

Ely Photographic Club is a local friendly club founded in 1974 which now has approximately 35 members, who have a wide range of photographic experience, from beginner to expert. 

We provide a varied and interesting programme of competitions, presentations, workshops, training and social events in order to support our members and encourage them to improve their photographic skills. We also now have an agreement with a local farmer to access his land for the purposes of taking wildlife images.  

The club would normally meet on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Ely College (but see above), and the season runs from September through to the end of May. We also now run a monthly Advanced Photo Group on the first Thursday of each month, run by one of our experienced club members, which is designed to help you to improve your photographic and post-processing skills.  The club also now has open and closed Facebook groups, as well as Twitter and Instagram accounts where we can share our images. When we resume meeting in person again at the college there are good facilities and free car parking.

We very much welcome new members, and we sometimes arrange informal meetings where you can meet up with us – please keep an eye on our Events page for these. If you would like to see what the club is about, we would be very pleased for you to join us for up to 3 meetings as a guest without any commitment to join the club. This season we will be offering a greatly reduced membership fee of £35 for the year, which is less than £1 per meeting! Please browse our site for more information about the club  and our contact details, as well as our programme of events for next season.
